Windows Me is targeted at folks who haven't built their lives around computers. So is this book. It's everything a novice could ask for. Simple explanations, without a trace of condescension. Great visuals and step-by-step instructions that show you exactly what to do -- even when and where to click. How-To Hints that let you accomplish even more. All in a full-color, oversized format that'll lie flat while you follow along.
How to Use Microsoft Windows Me gets you through the "overhead" of working with Windows in a hurry: navigating the desktop, finding your stuff, adjusting your settings, maintaining your system, backing up your files. Then it's on to the stuff you really want to do. Exploring the Internet (and keeping safe there). Sending and receiving email. Editing and printing documents. Using Windows' built-in applications. Capturing images from your digital camera or scanner. Getting into multimedia with the Windows Media Player and the new Windows Movie Maker. There's even a chapter on Windows Me gaming.
It's all friendly, simple, and thoroughly visual. This is the one to give Grandma. (Or, maybe, it's the one Grandma should give you.) (Bill Camarda)
